Gossip Girl Round Table: "The Dark Night"

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?

DANdy: Blair's response to Catherine, when the latter asked if the former had seen Nate: "Um, no, it's a blackout." Both bitchy and logical at once!

Mister Meester: When Blair calls Catherine out as an "aging beauty having her last fling before the surgeries start. It's called a cliché." Oh. Snap.

Gossip Guy: I think my favorite quote was the exchange between Chuck and Serena about our poor boy losing his mojo. But if we want to get technical and just have a single quote, I have to give it to Serena for "You are not using Blair as sexual Drano!" A good friend - and funny!

2. How will man-whore Nate escape the clutches of Catherine?

DANdy: He won't. Soon enough, Nate will wake up and realize he's sleeping with a stunning older woman, who likely knows her way around the bedroom AND is paying him for his dalliances. Maybe then Nate will stop being such a wuss.

Mister Meester: This cougar isn't mauling Nate because of his personality. He just needs to pull a Chuck and have some "equipment failure."

Gossip Guy: Why should he? So he can go running into the arms of the less attractive Vanessa? Stay where you are, man bangs, and be a good son. I mean it could be a lot worse. You got yourself one good looking sugar momma!

3. Better fake accent: Florida native Patrick Heusinger as Marcus, or the pride of London, Ed Westwick, as Chuck Bass?

Mister Meester: Ed, hands down, but props to the writers for giving both of them excuses to use their real accents this season!

Gossip Guy: Wait... Marcus is supposed to be English?!? Go Ed!

DANdy: Ed Westwick! He plays the Bass with a convoluted, cocky drawl that is almost as outlandish as Chuck's typical fashion choices. I still don't see how Blair hasn't given in to him.

4. Do you like the Jenny / fashion design story line?

Gossip Guy: At first I hated it, but the story line has been growing on me now that Mrs. Waldorf has returned. But as far as realism goes, wow this plot is silly.  The girl is 14 and landed a successful fashion internship?? I guess it sure beats her other statutory rape plot lines.

DANdy: Not as much as a story line that would involve Taylor Momsen aging four years and posing naked for Playboy.

Mister Meester: I like it enough, although it's been a tad boring. I'm more looking forward to Jenny's apparent future hook-up.


An underling of Gossip Girl catches Dan and Serena in the act.

5. How big a moron is Dan?

Gossip Guy: Out of a scale of 1 to 10? I'd say somewhere around a 968,375,275.2 Yeah, go have fun hanging out with Vanessa. You sure won in this breakup, loser.

DANdy: So big, he fell over, broke his leg and gravy spilled out!

Mister Meester: I get that Dan would be a little insecure about his social standing, but bloggers and snotty 10-year-old girls are getting in his head now? Give us a break, Dan. Then grow a pair and go win back our girl.
